ASSEMBLYMAN STEVE KATZ TO HOSTSTAR FORUM FOR SENIORS
Assemblyman Steve Katz (R,C,I-Yorktown) will be hosting a forum to assist seniors interested in applying for the Enhanced STAR Program. The Enhanced STAR Program provides property tax relief for qualifying seniors.
“The Enhanced STAR Program is of vital importance to seniors, and we want to ensure this forum provides as much information as possible. Seniors living off a fixed income are vulnerable to tax increases, and it’s important that we protect them as much as we can,” said Katz. “They helped make New York State the place it is today. They’ve served our society and now it’s time we help them live their golden years the best they can.”
The Assemblyman and his staff, along with John Wolham, Regional Director for the state’s Office of Real Property Tax Services, will be present to give a brief presentation about Enhanced STAR and to assist with questions. Area seniors are encouraged to attend the forum, which will be held Friday, March 15, 2013 at the Yorktown Town Hall. The forum is set to start at 12:30 p.m.
